Suffolk police are asking for help identifying two men who broke into the Happy Shopper convenience store on Carolina Road recently.

The men were captured on video between 3 and 4 a.m. May 25 as they broke one of the front windows of the business, according to Suffolk spokesperson Debbie George.

One of them then entered the store and went for the cigarette counter and beer cooler, where he took 12-packs of Steele Reserve. The other man waited outside.
